Chkdsk says RAW?

Post by Syztemlord on Thu Dec 06, 2012 8:31 pm

Hi,

I'm having a problem with one of my drives. I tried copying some files across to it the other day, a few of them did copy but before it completed it seemed to lock up and not copy the last files. I've tried it a few more times with different files and every time it is the same. I tried running CHKDSK and it says the drive is RAW. I have a lot of movies on the drive and I can access and play them. I have also found an empty directory on the drive that I can't delete.

Any ideas what has happen and if I can fix it?

Sounds like the drive has failed. Well, maybe only the electronics that connect the drive to your computer has failed.

If this is an external drive, try removing the hard drive and putting it in another enclosure. That may help.
